Who will run Venezuela after Hugo Chavez?
Hugo Chavez came to power 14 years ago promising a revolution in Venezuela. His mix of socialism and populism along with his personal appeal was dubbed "chavism". To some, he is a hero standing up for the downtrodden, to others he has run roughshod over the rights of many. Today he lies ill in Havana, his exact condition unknown after treatment for a recurrence of cancer. Before he left for Cuba, he named a successor in the event of his death. So today we ask what would life and politics be like in Venezuela after Chavez.
